NOMINATE: best illuminated skyscrapers

In order to find out what skyscraper is best lit or illuminated, please all nominate your favorite illuminated skyscrapers. The top 16 most nominated skyscrapers will be lined up in the Illumination Cup tournament.

rules: you can nominate up to 3 skyscrapers for this cup. Buildings can be illuminated by either external lighting (spotlights) or internal lighting (neon). Temporary lighting schemes are not eligible. Feel free to add images to inspire others, but please do not use this thread for discussion.

Happy nominating!

Petronas for sure, but already mentioned. if this is about illuminated structures and not only skyscrapers (i saw someone mentioning eiffel tower) then i would of course also nominate canton tower.

also the big clock tower in makkah wasn't mentioned yet and taipei 101, both looking stunning at night.
